The condemned buildings in the city continue to endanger the lives and property of people residing in them and nearby, especially during the rainy season. After a building collapse incident in Chukkhuwala area last month, the Municipal Corporation of Dehradun (MCD) claimed to have issued notices to the occupants of condemned buildings listed by the corporation. In addition to this, the MCD also pasted notices on these buildings to raise public awareness and encourage people to leave such dilapidated buildings as soon as possible. The Dehradun municipal commissioner Vinay Shankar Pandey has stated that the cases of about 32 such buildings are pending in the court due to the owner-tenant disputes but considering the danger these buildings can pose to lives and property, the MCD would keep its side before the court to clarify how much risky it is to let these buildings exist anymore. At that time, the officials had also stated that after giving 15 days time to vacate 16 undisputed condemned buildings, the corporation will take action by commencing the procedure of demolishing such buildings with the help of district administration and police. However, no such action has been taken by the corporation. On being asked about this matter, the deputy municipal commissioner, Rohitash Sharma said that the corporation had already issued the notices to the occupants of these buildings in July because the corporation is aware of the damage these buildings can cause to the lives and property. The procedure of taking the next step in this matter is under process and in the next few days, the MCD will take action against the undisputed condemned buildings in Dehradun, added Sharma.
